Subject: I have to disagree
Although it's an unusual and intriguing set list, the wheels don't really get smokin' until part way through set 2, at which point we have the confusing choice of "Brent's Blues". For most of this, the playing is really nothing special. I don't see how you can call this a 5-star show, next to the previous night.

Subject: Long Beach Classic Show
The quintessential early 80's show. Great tune selection, super high energy and very well played (esp. Jerry).

Love the China > Rider first set closer, as well as the interwoven jams in the middle of the second set.

This show rivals Long Beach 12/13/80 in overall quality, which is really saying something since that was a sick show. Must have been awesome to attend!!

Subject: Bolero Jam?
It is called Spainish Jam, not Bolero jam. It is based on a two chord vamp (E-->F) off of Miles Davis' "Sketches From Spain". I read that is where Weir pulled it from in an article. Although it is a standard "Spainish" vamp that makes up a number of tunes.

Subject: wonderful
Excellent recording.
Wonderful playing; so much desire and connectiveness and interplay. A few moments when the wheels slip on track, but overall just dripping w/energy and wonder.
